I figured someone would find some explanation to rationalize his behavior. Except he already knew our family because they lived less than two minutes from us and we visited them all the time. He was completely familiar with us, and we to him. It's not like it was "Oh, your aunt died so let's ship you off to that bitter, racist family that you barely know so they can judge you on a subconscious level." The reason he stayed with us is because we already knew him the best. And I really have no idea how we could have given him any more shelter than he was already getting.
Willful ignorance and laziness don't necessarily mean you're a misunderstood guy who only tries to act tough on the outside because deep down you want a hug. My parents took him to counselling many times, even at home they would sit down and talk with him frequently so they could put all the cards on the table and try to figure out how to get him straightened out.
And I think you misunderstood me. It wasn't a case of "Ship him off to some faraway school with a frown so we don't have to deal with him anymore," It was a school that was nearby, he never had to be shipped away anywhere, the school was well within reach.
"They get treated as if it's expected of them, like they're animals. Even compared to monkeys on a daily basis. But no one ever considers that mental illness exists in the ghetto as well."
Mate, don't take it the wrong way, but this is utter stupidity. With all of the assumptions you're making up here, you're essentially telling me that after everything my parents did, it was somehow their fault that he ended up this way. Nobody treated him differently because of the color of his skin. Nobody expected him to do what he did. You are trying to create your own artificial racism to excuse him for the mistakes he made. "He didn't know any better, he was only doing what people expected of him." is the laziest, most bullshit argument I've ever heard. Regardless of what hand of cards you're dealt in life, it's just that: YOUR LIFE. Everything you do, the choices you make, it reflects on you, not everybody else. You can't blame everybody around you for the hand you were dealt and use it as some free pass to excuse you of your failure. My cousin comes around every couple of years asking my family for money because he can't even hold up a fucking job, don't sit there and try to tell me he only does that because my evil, racist parents expected him to fail in life.
zaphodcoolfrood I tried to address a bunch of Mickey's "points", and a few of yours as well. You wanted me to add context so I'm mentioning you here.

Honestly, I can't find anything saying that a white painted surface is as reflective as reflective paint when it comes to reflecting heat. The Department of Energy, on its site, simply suggests using reflective paints/roofing materials, while most sites just contain forums with people saying that the reflective paints work slightly better but cost a lot more. There is a movement going on, with a website, that suggests that owners of buildings with black tar roofs should paint them white because it is a very cheap way to lower the cost of cooling their buildings by up to 30%, but it doesn't give any comparison between using white paints and reflective paints. I was, however, able to find a statistic on a forum, that may or may not be accurate, that showed using matte white was better than glossy white when it came to reflecting heat but it didn't mention actual reflective paints at all.

They ended entirely about 50 years ago. My 86 year old grandfather died last October.
While your statement "No one [...] is alive today." MIGHT be true, it's not like the end of segregation was celebrated by every single person. People who fought tooth and nail to prevent the end of Jim Crow laws are absolutely alive today.

Does America's continued use of people paid a few cents a day to make very expensive products count as slavery?
The answer is yes but it makes people uncomfortable.
#68 - anon (01/22/2016) [-]
That's a capitalist thing, not American. There's companies based in Europe and Asia that do the same thing if not worse.
#61 - jdrinfantry (01/22/2016) [-]
Its not slavery as long as you can walk away from it.
Is it slavery just because no one has a better offer to make? Fuck no, it might suck hella bad, but it aint slavery.
A draft might be slavery, like they had in the Vietnam war, but a lousy salary doesnt count as slavery.
